This kid is so good at everything it's annoying. Every football game, if he doesn't play, the team will lose, and they know it. He's on the debate team, he's an honor student, everyone loves this kid. And you'd think by the 50th time he couldn't play in the football game because of some crazy reason, the dean or something would try to postpone the game until he was there. plus, he always only plays like the last play to win the game. This guy hasn't played a full game in his entire collegiate career.
